    Benefits of Taking AP Exams

    Your AP exam grades, if sufficiently high, could earn you college credit, placement, or both at thousands of colleges and universities, enabling you to move into upper-level courses in your field of interest, pursue a double major, or gain time to study or travel abroad.

    Taking an AP exam also lets you experience a college-level exam. Your work will be evaluated by college and university professors and AP teachers using college-level standards. If you’re worried about how well you’ll do, remember – you risk nothing by taking the exam.

    Finally, taking AP exams allows you to earn an AP Scholar Award. Each September, the College Board recognizes high school students who have demonstrated exemplary college-level achievement on the AP exams. These academic distinctions will strengthen your applications, resumes, etc. For additional information about award criteria, please visit the College Board website. www.collegeboard.com/apstudents

    Earning College Credit or Placement

    Individual colleges and universities, not the College Board or the AP program, grant course credit and placement. You should obtain a college’s AP policy in writing; you can find this information in the institution’s catalog, its website, or by using the AP credit policy info search at www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy 

    If you are interested in applying to a college or university outside the United States, you can find information about AP recognition policies at  www.collegeboard.com/apintl
